  2. I have increased our donation amount due to a price increase from the hosting company. It happened last year but I've been covering it so far..... Also PayPal is charging more so I still end up covering extra amounts due to the exchange rate fees. I paid a lot more this month due to the mad exchange rate.
    The Ad revenue has been slow but traffic is picking up as everyone is home.
    I know times are tough for some right now due to this dam virus but every spare dollar helps.
    Hope you all are keeping safe

    Welcome to Tsimarza,
    This is a small medieval town located on a big lake with a lot of islands. The forest covers a major part of the territory, tourism is very developed thanks to the historical heritage. The region has known a lot of wars between lordships during Middle-Age, that's why many castles were built. Tsimarza became more and more powerful with regard to the other villages or towns and could unify the region and form a little kingdom which is finally conquered by a bigger neighbouring country in the 16th century. The city grew up a lot during industrial area but now the branch of industry is in decline.


    Walled town of Tsimarza.



    Commercial area built instead of former factories and Tsimarza Maze.

    Puerto Flores is a city located in a small archipelago located south of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a small city, but in constant growth, especially driven by the constant industrial and commercial growth.
    Founded in 1976, as an alternative port and passage of products from Africa and Asia, to South America, the city received immigrants from all three continents, accentuating the cultural diversity of its inhabitants, which gave way to a series of festivals both popular and religious, which have made it a tourist destination of general interest.
    The industrial and commercial port has grown so much that it has attracted investors from all over the world to the city. Recently a new agreement has been signed to expand the tourist port, because the current government intends to turn this sector into the base of the economy of the archipelago, with a projection towards the future.

    1. The Central Park

    2. Industrial and commercial port and the skyline of the main island
